Longest Day Driving School schedule

The Longest Day Driving School is one of our longest-standing High Performance Driving Events. This year’s school will be held at the Raceway Park of the Midlands (near Council Bluffs) on June 8-10.

WE’RE BACK-2018 Longest Day Driving School

WE’RE BACK-2018 Longest Day Driving School

After taking a one year hiatus, the Longest Day Driving School is back. Unfortunately, due to management changes at Raceway Park of the Midlands, we were unable to offer our members our traditional driving school last year, but a new improved 2018 version of LDDS is in the planning stages, and will be one you won’t want to miss.

We will have some new exciting added features, which will be unveiled in an upcoming issue, but the traditional version of the school will consist of the best driving instructors in the Midwest helping you improve your driving skills. Our driving school matches each student to an instructor which provides one-on-one ontrack instruction in order to help improve your driving ability. No matter how much or how little experience you have behind the wheel, on the street or on the track, our driving schools will make you a better driver.

Whether your goal is to learn to drive more safely and confidently on the street or the track, our program is custom tailored to each participant. Your instructor will assess your skills, set priorities, and work with you in the car. Our school is one of the finest and safest in the country thanks in large part to our experienced instructors and our choice of Raceway Park of the Midlands (RPM) as our host track. Registration will be soon open on our website. If you would like more information, or to volunteer at LDDS, please contact David Brighton at dwbrighton@gmail.com or Manoj Tomar at manoj.tomar@gmail.com

Spring Drive 2018 – April 14

Spring Drive 2018 – April 14

Yes, mother nature promises that Spring is just around the corner, and will arrive just in time for our annual spring drive on April 14!  So, time to dust off the  ultimate driving machine and enjoy a fun filled day exploring Southeastern Iowa, and socializing with your fellow BMW enthusiasts.

We will launch from BMW of Des Moines at 8:45AM (arrive there NLT 8:30 please), or you can join the drive at our first major stop at Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery in Swisher, IA, at 11:00AM that day if more convenient.  Our route will take us from Des Moines west to Swisher, then southwest to the Quad Cities, then along the Mississippi river southwest to Kalona, and home from there.  At Cedar Ridge we will be treated to a tour of their ever expanding award winning operation followed by a group lunch from their menu of great wood fired gourmet pizza’s, and small plate palate pleasers, then in the Quad Cities, we will get a tour of the recently updated BMW of Davenport facilities, and finally in historic Kalona we will have a “to die for” dinner at the very popular Tuscan Moon restaurant featuring delicious Italian/American entrees, plus burgers/sandwiches, salads, and even great vino at your choice.

It promises to be a fun day, and an outstanding opportunity to reconnect with your old friends and make some new ones, all while driving the scenic, relaxing two-laned back roads (all paved!) across Southeastern Iowa in your prize Beemer.  The more the merrier so please be sure to join us if you possibly can!!   Map and Route
